ITACA tackles the competitiveness of Adriatic fisheries sector, fostering the introduction of blue innovation and improving the sustainability of catch activities. The focus is on small pelagic (SP) fisheries, meaning the fishing activities targeted on two main fish species: anchovy and sardine that represent a sinificant share of income for the sector in the Adriatic.
There is a need to increase the business capacities of SP fisheries SMEs, by providing the enterprises with tools and mechanisms allowing to match the fishing effort with market needs, ensuring therefore the maintenance of the proper producer price of SP fish in the market, to finally protect the SMEs income, and at the same time preserving the SP stocks from overexploitation. ITACA project, thanks to a tight cross-border cooperation among research bodies and representative of SP fisheries SMEs, contributes factually to the growth of the SP fisheries sector setting up, testing in 7 pilot regions and fostering the large scale application of innovative SMEs oriented tools to increase the competiveness of SP fisheries, together with establishing a SP fisheries enterprises cluster for a co-management of Adriatic ichthyic resources oriented to sustainability.
Project specific objectives are:

  • to introduce innovative tools for the competitiveness of Adriatic SP fisheries enterprises,
  • to establish a permanent cluster among SP fisheries enterprises,
  • to promote economic and enviromental sustainable SP fishing activities.
